BOWLS FROM A BOARD

Played around with different ways to laminate up for bowls from a board. This was mainly to use up bits and pieces of left over scraps lying around, all are approximately 9 inches diameter at the top. Some were cut on the band saw by doing them in two halves and a couple on the scroll saw, some OK some not the best but was a bit of fun on a very cold week down under.

G’day Bob. Well done!!!!! They certainly have the WOW factor!!!!!!! Love all the different colours in the wood.
I am quite in awe how you piece them together.
Picture 2 has an interesting look with the light coloured wood, front right between the darker woods. Very effective with an appearance like slices of apple….very attractive…..

You certainly made good use of that cold week Bob!!!!! Great work, thanks for posting.
Regards,

Cliff.

Thank you for this post. I have recently started to try and make bowls from a board, and this is inspiration. They look great. I love the way you pieced the wood together.

Geez, they are something very different. I like the ply ones, especially the last one. That looks like it still has the straps attached.
Wish I had you experimental mind.
Thanks for sharing,

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Cool bowls.
I’m seeing you (and some others) using plywood to cut bowls. I’m thinking I need to give that a try one of these days.

Very cool bowl’s Bob. The 4th one is my favorite. how did you do it? It looks to be 8 staves that were turned and them put back together. Is that how it was done??

Cheers, Jim

Nice looking batch bowls from a board Bob. You should really buy a Ring Master machine. Cutting rings to be glued up is so easy. and fast

Bob—Thank you for the direction to Carole Rothman. Love your hand crosses also. The birds are great… I like the non-religion specific nature of the birds.
